I'm quite confused how this came about as I haven't really changed any wireless settings of any sort other than upgrade my kernel a couple times (don't remember the last exact working version since I went through a few).

When I attempt to put wlan0 in monitor mode this is what I get:

Code:
airmon-ng start wlan0


Interface       Chipset         Driver

wlan0           Atheros         ath9k - [phy0]mon0: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device

                                (monitor mode enabled on mon0)

          Power Management:off
          Link Quality=70/70  Signal level=-35 dBm 
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:21  Invalid misc:1   Missed beacon:0

eth0      no wireless extensions.


The only advice I seem to find is people stating that the proper interface name has to be used, which I'm doing.
